. >> "america live" starts now. >> megyn: fireworks, partisan politics and class warfare, and president obama tries to pressure them into a deal that would prevent the automatic spending cuts the president backed from hitting next week. welcome to "america live" i'm megyn kelly. here is president obama earlier today at the white house surrounded as he is prone to do, likes to surround himself with the special interest groups if he didn't get what he's pushing for. and in this case, it's first responders. he directly called out republicans, suggesting they, and keep thinking that this is something the sequester deal that bob woodward reported came from the president. in any event he agreed to it and so do the republicans and now the president is saying the republicans are the ones putting american job security and even lives at risk. >> emergency responders, like the ones who are here today, their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters, will be degraded. border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to
could teach obama a thing or two about dealing with evil. like all americans we want our kids safe in school, but remember, kids sometimes need to be kids especially on the playground. i guess if i was a kid today i'd be arrested. that's all the time we have left this evening, as always, thank you for being with us, let not your heart be troubled. the news continues, greta is standing by next to go on the record and we'll see you here tomorrow night. greta. take it away. >> greta: tonight, drone-gate is heating up in washington, rush limbaugh is already on fire. >> this is from nbc news, a confidential justice department memo concludes that the united states government, ie, president obama, can order the killing of american citizens, if they are believed to be senior operation leaders of al-qaeda or associated force, even if there isn't any intelligence indicating that they're engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. that's casting a really wide net because it almost sounds like he won't even have to be a senior operational leader of al-qaeda or associate, or actually
were advanced and beyond what the democrats were able to do. the democrats under obama have caught up and far surpassed when republicans are able to do in terms of both gathering data, but then analyzing it and putting it to use, either to turn voters out, to discourage voters for the opposition from showing up, and in addition to that using social media as a way to harness support among the electorate in general. i think there are many areas here where republicans know they have to improve, but they've got to figure out how to do it, and what the chairman is doing both in visiting facebook, talking to technology experts in the bay area of northern california, and he'll be in washington state in seattle to talk about early voting in general. there, jon as you remember democrats are just a lot better right now at turning out voters for early voting. why that's so important, sometimes it's hard to convince somebody to show up on one day out of 365. but if you've got four weeks to work them over you can get them out to vote and end up with more voters. jon: success r- mark zuckerberg is
while kimukimjune unis in control. probably it is no coincidence that today obama will be delivering that state of the union address. they are looking for a maximum tie-in with their arch enemy the united states. martha: this merry-go-round over north korea's nukes goes back 20 years. it froze its nuclear program in 1994 in an agreement with the u.s. but that broke down in 2002. north korea has been ramping up their production ever since. they put the number in the north between 4-13 nuclear bombs. bill: this is the range of the missile we do believe north korea has the capacity to. the range said to be 6,000 kilometers away from north korea. just to the edge of where you would findway. here is the dmz that separates north korea. this time of year it is isolated, it is remote, it is cold and snowy as well. we'll show you the region for the number of countries -- they have been party to the talks with north korea in the past. we are gauging talks out of moscow. we are going to bring you all of that as we move throughout the morning. northern region of north korea is where this was det
which would provoked this. and fox has confirmed that president obama has spoke to f.b.i. director to congratulate him on the coordination of the f.b.i. and local law enforcement. there is still after this press conference so many questions unanswered. one of the biggest why did the gunman take that little boy hostage in the first place. he spoke with his sister a short time ago. good evening, what did the gunman, kidnapper's sister say? >> she had very little to say. i spoke with her about an hour after the end of the situation. she seemed to accept it as it is. she had very little to say. the family and none of us knew that he was leading to this, only the neighbors probably knew what was really going on. >> greta: now, you knew him as a young child in the area. i think you are both about the same age, you knew this man? >> i did, yes, and as i've known him as a child a small prd of time in adult never showed these kind of tendencies but his family knew that he had anti-government views before he was estranged from them. >> greta: i must admit i'm curious about your criminal just
as congressional republicans. remember, president obama last year during the debate with mitt romney said the sequester won't happen, so this is going to happen on his watch. at the same time obama's approval ratings arat a three-year high. there is risk for the g.o.p. here, the republicans are very flus traited with the white house, they are staying that the white house is not serious about spending cuts so they have to take whatever cuts they can get, even these spending reduction -gs, which they don't like, but they say something has to be done. jon: along those lines rich lowry of the national review wrote this regarding republicans. he said republicans want to blame president barack obama for the idea of the sequester even though they signed on to it as a bipartisan deal to get past the tkebl ceiling showdown of 2011. do they think that no one will remember that they voted for the deal? he does have a point. >> he does. it's a tough uphill climb i think for republicans. president obama has the bully pulpit of course and right now republicans are issuing press releases. they are not i
that off? could you cut 2 1/2% from the hemmer budget? bill: i could, yeah, this afternoon. president obama is talking about his round of golf with tiger wood for the first time now. this is from 2009, this picture. of a the white house took heat for shutting out the white house press corps. did you hear tiger. >> he hit the ball well and got amazing touch. he can certainly chip-and-putt. if he ever spent, after these four years, if he spend more time playing the game of golf, i'm sure he can get to where he's a pretty good stick. new honey bunches of oats greek yogurt and whole grain. here we go. honey cornflakes and chunks of greek yogurt. i'm tasting both the yogurt and the honey at the same time. i'm like digging this yogurt thing. i feel healthy. new honey bunches of oats greek. martha: we are just getting some wire reports here. police are on the scene in las vegas. a shooting was reported near the vegas strip. about 4:20 a.m. their time this happened. they're on the scene. we'll keep a close eye on it. we'll bring you the latest on that developing situation as we get more. bill: mean
even if it means raising some new revenue just the way obama is demanding. joining me now with his take on all of this joe trippi, howard dean's former campaign manager hanna fox news contributor. joe has a strategist do you agree that that is really what is happening here with the president? >> it's certainly by default going to go down that way. part of the reason i think it works for him is that the republican part see is sort of fractured right now and is arguing about the path to take. i mean, even within its own ranks and that definitely hess the president, who by the way has this -- i know we look at his 53% approval rating and wonder, that's relatively slow sometimes for a second term, beginning of a second term, but the republicans in congress have a 23, 24% approval rating, so, you know, you put those two things in combination and he's got a lot more room to maneuver and to push, and he seems to be very aggressive to do this. jenna: approval ratings aside, i don't want to mention the approval ratings of the media, we are pretty low in there too. that aside the president is goi
obama and agency head more flexibility to keep money going to top priority issues and taking money away from lesser programs, but top democrats didn't like the plan because they didn't like keeping all of the spending reductions. >> we're open to any reasonable approach. yes. but remember, we cannot solve the problems of this country with cuts, cuts, cuts. we've cut $2.6 trillion. we need to do more. but we're going to do it with -- in balanced approach. we cannot continue to hurt the middle class and the poor. >> so the republican plan failed first. then the democrats had their own plan. it would have included new tax revenue, which republicans didn't like. this plan really took a beating when the congressional budget office, nonpartisan last night, said it would actually contribute $7.2 billion to the deficit. bottom line, the senate republican leader says it just didn't work. >> not only would their legislation fail to fix the spending problem facing our country, it would actually add billions more to the deficit. in other words, it isn't a plan at all. it's a gimmick. top democrats
in spending cuts. some of which could begin in the month president obama, for his part, back on the road today, heading for newport news, virginia. you will see him in three hours time. that is big military community where he plans to highlight painful cuts they say for the pentagon and the u.s. navy. but republican leaders calling on the president to quote, stop campaigning and help them solve the problem. but at the moment, there are no meetings planned between any of these sides, the house, the senate, the white house and they're taking friday off as of now. martha: all right. well the looming budget cuts were high on the agenda when the president sat down with the national governors association yesterday. arizona governor jan brewer went "on the record" with greta van susteren to get her impressions exactly what happened at that meeting. here's that. >> you know, he definitely says he wants to work together but obviously he doesn't want to compromise one little bit. bottom line he wants to raise taxes. and he doesn't want to cut. i think the american people believed, that the time now is t
have any opposition to the suggestion we go into sequestration and allow the obama administration to move funds around to accommodate certain programs they think are the right ones to pay? >> yeah, there's a pay that the money can be moved around. for example, in the military they have 5.2 million they spent on gold fish, studying gold fish to see how democratic they were and if we could learn about democracy from gold fish. i would give the president the authority to go ahead and cut all 5 million dollars in gold fish studies. i'd give him the authority to cut off the 1.5 million that was studied rollup beef jerky last year in the pentagon's budget. so, yes, i would give him more authority if he's willing to use it to cut off some of this nonsense, but i don't really trust a lot of what's going on when i see him putting local firemen and policemen behind them and saying, republicans are going to make them lose their job. the sequester was his idea, he signed it into law and he needs to take responsibility and he needs to act responsibly and we've given him a list of cuts he could

cain and lindsey graham. it is also interesting to note, jon, lindsey graham is someone who supported obama supreme court nominees. he clearly is opposing hagel here. jon: primarily what a lot of these senators want is information on a number of fronts, especially on the benghazi attack. what happened, how muc did the white house know, how involved was the president? that's what they're looking for, right? >> yeah, that is what they're looking for. they did ask some questions of hillary clinton about what she said to the president. their talks that night. they want more information as far as what, what was happening that night as these reports were coming in that christopher stevens and others were in danger. what was the white house doing? they want more details on it. until they get those details senator john mccain said looks like he would support the filibuster. earlier in the week he was saying, suggesting he wouldn't. but he wants more answers. until he gets the answers looks like hagel could be stonewalled at least for this week. jon: how interesting and maybe ironic that the pivotal vote or

. tsa will not be funded. things like that. i think what we're seeing is the blame game. president obama has proved himself being very good at that. i think we're seeing it now again. he is very good at laying blame on the republicans for these things. jon: we're looking to cut two or three cents out of every federal dollar in spending, is that right? >> it is less, 10% or less, for across the government. which, you know, i can speak for, you know, just for myself. americans families over last several years have been cutting that sort of stuff from their budget. jon: for instance in, my world, if i were looking to cut some money, i could, you know, shave my cable tv bill. i could, maybe stop eating out at restaurants. or could i give away the family dog and tell me kids they can't go to college. and, it appears what the federal government is doing, is taking the most severe, sort of draconian measures, possible, under this system. >> to take this at face value, would be, would be to make the argument that the federal government, in, the monstrosity that is the federal government, does no

room because republicans have walked away from them in the past. president obama wanted to show them the faces of some of the people that will be hurt if there's no deficit reduction agreement as well as to argue the spending cuts would have a very bad impact. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. the unemployment rate might tick up again. >> reporter: mr. obama wants a combination of tax revenue and spending cuts, but republicans say any new tax revenue should be used to lower overall rates for everyone, shepherd. >> the simpson-bowles commission with a new plan. what's the reaction to that. >> reporter: the white house loves that the plan calls for new tax revenue, but officials not showing much enthusiasm for the much deeper cuts in health care spending that the president wants. former white house chief of staffer bowles and simpson, a republican from wisconsin, say -- wisconsin wisconsin were close to a deal. th
